Talk about turd-polishing.
Well, whatdya know. Another National Cabinet Minister has been revealed as a dirty liar. Murray McCully lied to Parliament about a potential law suit from the Al Khalaf Group which necessitated an $11.5m taxpayer-funded bribe.
RNZ has finally obtained information under the OIA which shows MFAT's "legal advice" which McCully repeated claimed, never existed. And if I'm not mistaken, Key and others also repeated the lie in public.
Somebody benefited from this National Party farce, and taxpayers lost $11.5m. Surely prosecutions are in order?
Have we ever had a more corrupt government in New Zealand? Not that I can remember.
A change of government is well overdue.
